May Allah SWT accept our fasting, prayers, supplications, charity, and all other righteous deeds. Ameen! We want to take this opportunity to enlighten you about the day of Eid and some of the recommended acts related to this day: Say the takbeeraat from the evening before till the actual prayer is prayed الله أكبر ، الله أكبر الله أكبر لا إله إلا الله والله أكبر الله أكبر ولله الحمد Please pay your Zakat Al-Fitr before performing the Eid prayer. Zakat al-Fitr is compulsory upon all those that have food stored in their houses. Take a shower (Ghusl). Wear your nicest clothes, and apply fragrance. Have an odd number of dates after Fajr. If one does not have dates any food will do. Perform the Eid prayer at home, individually or with family members living with you. The Eid prayer consists of 2 units. The first unit has 7 takbeeraat in it including the initial takbeer (Takbeeratul Ihram). The Second unit has 5 takbeeraat in it after the takbeer of standing. It is followed by a khutbah which can be given at home but is not mandatory. Exchange greetings with your loved ones virtually online or on the phone and congratulate one another with greetings like, "Eid Mubarak" (May your Eid be blessed) and "Taqballa Allahu minna wa minkum" (May Allah accept from us and from you). We would also like to remind all of the parents to make Eid a joyous occasion for the children so that they learn to love this day. Please do give them gifts and try to make it as festive as possible for them. Thank you again, and we appreciate your continued support and prayers. Islamic Information Society of Calgary (IISC)
- Congratulations: Fairview Southeast Masjid Opening on Thursday - May 25, 2023
April 17, 2023 As-salamu alaikum wa rahmatullah wabarakatuh dearest community members, We hope that this message finds you well. We are truly grateful for your generous support. With the blessing of Allah SWT and then your generosity, we have collected donations to cover the full payment for the new Masjid, including the outstanding pledges of $295,870, Alhamdulillah. We expect the remaining commitments to come due by the opening date of Thursday - May 25th, 2023, making up the full payment of $2.625 million, In-sha'Allah. Converting the existing church into the Fairview Southeast Masjid will complete Phase-I of the initial plan. To enable the community to benefit immediately, the Fairview Southeast Masjid will open with basic clean-up and minimum renovations; however, without the building's new design, floor plan, structure upgrades, washrooms, etc. We will continue to accept donations toward this noble project to allow the funds to be used as your sadaqa jariya for renovating, remodelling, maintenance, and where needed. Thank you again for supporting this virtuous cause. May Allah (SWT) abundantly reward you for your contributions and duaa, making it heavy on your scale of good deeds. We will keep you updated on the progress and any new developments. Together, we made a lasting impact creating a legacy for future generations. Jazakum Allahu Khairan.
